Treatise on Jesus of Nazareth III


92

Many people mistake their work
For their vocation, but our vocation
Is to love, universal and immediate
This is why we are here on Earth

If you marry something, make sure
It fills every opportunity in you
To make the world a better place
That is the feast, and that is the holy communion

Having loved those who shared our lives
How can we have any regrets in the end?
The resurrection is when we die to ourselves
And learn to give without rewards

Who can achieve it, all who have shed false-belief
I cannot consider myself righteous
If I do not learn to love the world more wholly
More fully, that is the vocation of my love

A new commandment I give to thee:
To serve each other, by this all the people
Will know that we are all disciples of true caring

Blessed are those who are not afraid
To lose what wasn’t meant to be;
From the rising of the sun, to the place
Where it sets, is the name of my Lord which is Love.

Treatise on Jesus of Nazareth II


91

Do not be anxious for tomorrow
For tomorrow she will be anxious for herself
Since all time loves its own troubles

As surely as we are sufficient in our cause
To suffer is part of living, therefore love
Give to everyone who begs from you

For giving is the greatest reward
We live on not bread alone
But with every word of kindness

And every joy that was shared
Do not pray if it delays action
For today is the time to act

Love thyself as if you were truly
Part of God, as little children of the Sun
Our kingdom is not of this world

We are but holy guests creating here
So serve and shelter what you create
For they will inherit what you once were

Believe in God, not for results
But for communion with a universe
In translation, remembering even
Our best translations sometimes go wrong.
